The current environment includes web designers, hosting providers, and marketing experts seeking to expand their market position, end users demanding new and innovative services and more control of their online assets while seeking to understand and assimilate new services. Changes to data privacy laws and the far reaching effects of social media are two areas where businesses are either struggling with compliance or seeking understanding.
An online presence is often the first impression potential customers have and there are many factors that can make this experience less than ideal. Data privacy and protection against identity theft and fraud are mandatory for online transactions. Misuse of social media can result in permanent loss of reputation if not controlled. Denial of service attacks and hacking of web sites also reduces trust and perception by customers of the business including the traditional business i.e. the perception is applied to the offline business as well.
Major online businesses suffer from security breaches as well as denial of service attacks. Recent attacks on major online businesses and government utilities demonstrate the importance of professional advice when planning an online presence.
